This dessert is super speedy to whip up, literally, and will keep for weeks in the freezer meaning you can have a fancy pud at the drop of the hat if you have unexpected guests pop in on you. With a buttery biscuit base and a silky smooth top, this cake is the perfect combination of flavour as well as texture. Serve with plenty of fresh raspberries for a fresh and fruity dessert.


  • 30g unsalted butter
  • 8 digestive biscuits, crushed into crumbs
  • 2 large eggs
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 300ml pot double cream
  • 2 lemons – grated zest from 1 and juice from both
  • Raspberries, to serve


  • Melt the butter and stir into the crushed biscuits. Spread evenly over the base of the dish but don’t press down.

  • Separate the eggs and whisk the whites until stiff. Add the sugar and whisk again until thick and glossy.

  • Whip the cream and fold in the egg yolks mixed with the lemon zest and juice. Fold the whites into the cream mixture.

  • Pour over the crumble base and put in the freezer. It will take 4-5 hours to freeze. Serve frozen, with raspberries.
